Tlaib Statement on Trump Facing Criminal Charges

Apr 04, 2023

DETROIT — Today, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-12) released the following statement regarding the indictment of the twice-impeached former President:

“Donald Trump has consistently proven that he was a lawless president and unfit for public office. History will remember Donald Trump not only as the first president to be impeached twice, but the first president to be indicted on criminal charges.

“Falsifying business records to cover up hush money payments is only the beginning of the crimes Trump has committed. He must also be held to account for conspiring to overturn an election, inciting a fascist insurrection, and fueling white supremacist violence.

“Today, the law has finally caught up with Donald Trump and his corrupt and reckless behavior. No one is above the law, no matter how rich or powerful they are. The American people deserve to see accountability handed down. Let justice be served.”
